For the 5th time I am delighted that The Guild of Photographers has chosen one of my images for their much loved ‘Image of the Day’.
You can see Claire and Tony’s Wedding Story here…
The shot was taken on a very dark, very cold December afternoon so I needed to be conscious of available light and made the decision not to use a speedlight for this one. The reason for that is that I wanted to showcase the more earthy low tones of the stone work as I knew that the ivory of the dress would pop really nicely without the need for additional light.
I think this was one of only a few images shot without any additional lighting that day as it was such a dark day weather wise. The romantic in me would say that love lit up every image!
Posing wise I had guided my Clients into the initial pose and then let the magic unfold (with some gentle prompts!) and this shot happened!
F-Stop: 3.2 / Exposure: 1/80 of a second / ISO: 2000 / Exposure bias: +0.7 / Focal length: 27mm / No flash
I love the depth of colour and I love that my Clients are absolutely besotted with each other. You’d think they were on their own – not with me standing a few metres back! I’m also a huge fan of framing an image with the natural surroundings. This venue has some fabulous locations for photographs.
Something you can’t see! My assistant Charlotte threw the veil in the air and ran as fast as she could out of shot! Perfect teamwork (as always!).
I also want to add that I was delighted to have achieved a High Bronze for this one in the IOM.
